Transitioning to an Online Tutoring Environment
Join Karen Sanders and Allyson Fetterhoff of Smarthinking for a discussion on the benefits of high-quality, subject-matter-expert online tutoring for both students and faculty.

Online tutoring support not only helps students seeking supplemental assistance outside of the classroom but also reduces faculty workload by enabling instructors to focus on the substantive content of assignments rather than on writing skills and review of basic concepts. This session identifies the benefits of high-quality, subject-matter-expert online tutoring for both students and faculty. We share examples and best practices for leveraging key features of online tutoring — including robust analytics and student alerts — to enrich course delivery, improve student work and participation, assure faculty their students are supported by highly qualified online educators, and ultimately lead to increased performance, persistence, and retention.
